    People at the level Stickman refers to want what they want. They usually aren't as invested as us online gun guys are with Brand X, Y, or Z. They want a capability, they want a performance, and they usually get it tailored to their specific and sometimes individual needs and desires.

    It's like a Pro Football player wanted these cleats, these pads, etc etc. Why? Because he wants them to perform at a very very high level. So he gets it. Not because your preferred brand sucks donkey balls, but because he wants what he wants.

    Its lighter, easier to repair/maintain in the field, more reliable (endurance testing for the geissele upper was insanely successful...), and the BCG.

    Different than what I mean, but yes, that is certainly true as well.

    The user groups in USASOC with 416's MTOE are not migrating back to DI guns.

    Also, I'm not seeing how a midlength URG equates with 10" assaulter guns.

    Slightly off topic.. IMO The USMC should of went with an URG type solution v M27

    Didn't the group that developed the HK416 initially want something like the MCX with the fordable stock?

    I recall reading about Jim Schatz's thoughts on the MCX concept on HK Pro and how he thought that was the future.
